§ Mr. Alexander
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many patients have absconded from Balderton hospital in the last six months; how many of these were officially reported missing; whether any are still at large; in which areas the homes were of such absconders; and if he will make a statement to reassure the residents of Balderton area.
§ Sir George Young
The information is not available centrally, and my hon. Friend may wish to ask the Nottinghamshire area health authority (teaching) for the information.
